Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon

Another one of Walt Disney World Resorts’ innovative tribute to their founder’s creative genius, Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon promises a veritable storm of experiences that will drive visitors through a whirlwind of wonderful surprises.

Experience the Wonders of a Water Paradise

The second water park of Walt Disney World, Typhoon Lagoon was conceived based on a Disney legend involving a typhoon that brought great destruction on a heretofore peaceful tropical island. At the heart of Typhoon Lagoon is a shrimp boat called Miss Tilly, which was strewn about, like all other elements on the island (fishing gear, surfboards, other ships), and ended up perched crazily atop Mount Mayday. Mount Mayday is a mountain at Typhoon Lagoon water park that erupts with a 50-foot spewing of water every thirty minutes.

Lagoona Gator serves as Typhoon Lagoon’s theme park mascot. The park has consistently been cited as the most visited water park in the world.

Enjoy the Water, Ride to your Heart’s Content

Typhoon Lagoon’s feature attractions take up the theme park’s biggest area. The park is dotted with numerous shaded, white sandy beaches where visitors can just soak in the beauty of the surroundings in complete relaxation.

While parents enjoy 90-minute surf waves interspersed with 30-minute bobbing waves at the wave pool called Typhoon Lagoon Surf Pool, their children can enjoy gentler spills and milder thrills over at Typhoon Lagoon Bay Slides. The little ones will surely enjoy frolicking on the beginner twin body slides that have them hurtling down gradually sloping surfaces, which eventually wind down to a big splash on a shallow, sheltered section of the Typhoon Lagoon Surf Pool.

Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon water park has a lazy creek that meanders along the water park’s perimeter. Castaway Creek allows push-off from any one of five landings along its 2000-foot course, then a lazy spin around the entire park for guests of all ages on sturdy inner tubes that are included with the cost of park admission. Typhoon Lagoon’s Castaway Creek provides guests with a carefree drift along the lazy river as they soak up the sights offered by the surrounding rainforest landscapes, the cavernous tunnel crafted through Mount Mayday, rope bridges just overhead, great waterfalls and the refreshing coolness of the river mist.

Close to the Typhoon Lagoon Surf Pool is Blustery Bay, which is surrounded by gentle sandy beaches. It is a zero-depth-entry wave pool.

Ketchakiddee Creek offers bubbling jets, raft rides and slides for tiny tots. Typhoon Lagoon has the Keelhaul Falls, a single-rider mild raft ride. For the more adventurous, there’s the wild Mayday Falls, which has the longest slide in the water park. Gang-Plank Falls takes riders between the ferocity of Mayday Falls and the mildness of Keelhaul Falls.

Typhoon Lagoon’s Storm Slides is composed of three body slides dancing wildly down three stories of crazy twists and turns. This water park attraction is not for the fainthearted.

Other Typhoon Lagoon water slide attractions include Humunga Kowabunga and Crush ’n’ Gusher. Surfing programs are offered. Teen Beach Movie: Beach Party is a novel interactive party concept where any beach bud or babe can take part in.

Truly, a day at Typhoon Lagoon is bound to be full of surprises for every member of the family!
